A beautiful and peaceful retreat.

We really enjoyed this little retreat. Great view of the water, wonderfully decorated, and many thanks to Chip for area insights and boat rentals.

Wonderful family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two sons (ages 20 & 17) and I stayed from Aug 15-19 and had a great time. The beds were comfortable and the boys traded off sleeping in the main area on the sofa bed so they wouldn't have to share the second bedroom, which worked fine. The house is nicely situated in a quiet area overseeing the lake, and is only a short drive to stores and restaurants. We enjoyed getting out on the lake in the paddle boat once we were able to pull ourselves away from the awesome veranda and fabulous view. Melissa was very helpful and responsive, and owner Chip was tremendously hospitable and entertaining - most appreciated!! Some very small things might have been nice to have, like coffee, tea/teapot and shower soap - but overall, a very memorable and happy stay.

Relaxing Lakeside Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful, relaxing time at the Lakeside Retreat! The home is decorated beautifully and was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and barbeque our meals for the five days we were there. The setting on the lake is beautiful and so peaceful. The deck was nice to enjoy in the evenings and we even got to fish from the boat dock, unfortunately, the fish had other ideas. We did get to enjoy a thunderstorm that came through on the last afternoon of our visit and we also got to walk the neighborhood daily and see the surrounding beautiful area. Thank you to Melissa and Chip and your family for sharing this slice of heaven in Mt. Juliet!

Very Nice - But

  • 4 of 5

First of all, let me say that the Struggle Free was very nice and we enjoyed our stay very much. The place was clean and well equipped. The deck area was really nice. Sunrises and coffee were great!

But, I would be remiss if I did not point out a concern. Be sure to understand what you are renting. Late in the game, we saw reviews of two bedrooms versus three. We talked with the owners who were very understanding and open to us finding alternate accommodations. After discussions of the home's layout, we opted to continue with the rental. It worked out well for us because we knew what to expect and were prepared ahead of time and our sleeping habits were similar. As is pointed out in the description of the property, the home has TWO bedrooms - one has a King Size Bed and the other has A Queen and a Double. The third sleeping location is comprised of two fold out couches in the large living area. As I said this worked out fine for our family. I would note that, since we knew about the fold outs ahead of time, we brought a blowup mattress to sleep on - which worked much better. Pulled out one of the fold outs to "test it" first and was very happy we had the blow up. As I said earlier, we really enjoyed our stay - but I can understand why some folks might not be too happy with the lack of the third bedroom.

One other quirky thing. The two bathrooms are adjacent to each other. A portion of the wall between them does not go all the way to the ceiling allowing sound to travel between them and even o the kitchen if one of door is left open. The opening is 9 - 10 feet up.

Unusual - Interesting.

Again, let me say that the home was very nice - clean and comfortable. The deck is excellent.

Car: recommended

Located on old hickory lake with your own private boat dock and paddle boat. Fantastic fishing, skiing, or just 'hanging out' playing water volleyball right in the cove. Conveniently loecated to Downtown Nasville to take in the local sites like Tootsie's, Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame, and much more.
